Tina Fey's hit NBC show, "30 Rock.," is among the new slate of content coming to Netflix this August.

It's that time of the month again. Netflix announced its new slate of content that will be added to its library this August, as well as some titles that are departing the streaming service.

All seven seasons of Tina Fey's hit NBC comedy "30 Rock" are hitting the platform this August. The show first aired from 2006 to 2013 and stars Fey, Alec Baldwin, Tracey Morgan, Jane Krakowski, Jack McBrayer and more. The show features guest cameos from actors like Matt Damon, Jerry Seinfeld, Jason Sudeikis, Oprah, Matthew Broderick and more.

Fey, who grew up in Upper Darby, said the show was inspired by her time as head writer for Saturday Night Live. 

It centers around a fictional live sketch comedy show that airs on NBC and takes place at 30 Rockefeller Plaza, where SNL is filmed.

The feature-length documentary "Pray Away," premiering on Netflix Aug. 3, examines the enduring harm of conversion therapy and the "pray the gay away" movement. 

It follows the former leaders of the pray the gay away movement as they contend with the aftermath of their actions, along with a survivor, as they seek healing and acceptance after more than a decade of conversion therapy.

The film, directed by Kristine Stolakis, premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival on June 16 and at Doc10, a documentary film festival in Chicago, from June 17-20. Ryan Murphy, who co-created the hit show "Glee," was among the film's executive producers.
